éolane launches Sigfox reference design module for M2M and IoT market

éolane, has introduced a comprehensive Sigfox reference design module that makes it easy to develop sensor-to-cloud applications for Sigfox networks. As a Sigfox partner and Sigfox Ready solution provider, éolane is extending its range of sensor and actuator development platforms for Sigfox networks.

éolane’s new Sigfox reference design module is based on Silicon Labs’ EZR32 wireless microcontroller (MCU), which combines a high-performance sub-GHz transceiver with an energy-friendly ARM Cortex-M3 MCU. The reference design module offers exceptional wireless performance with -128 dBm sensitivity (154 dbm link budget) and bi-directional communication (100 bps uplink and 600 bps downlink).

Complementing the Sigfox reference design module, éolane supplies a Sigfox development kit that combines various sensors (including GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, temperature sensors, hygrometry/humidity sensors and magnetic sensors), popular MCU interfaces (such as UART, USB and I2C) and an open-source, Eclipse-based software development environment that enables easy access and monitoring of the sensors embedded in the kit.

The combination of éolane’s development kit and Sigfox reference design module simplifies the prototyping and development of wireless sensing applications for the IoT.

“We have great ambitions for the IoT market, where we expect to see high growth opportunities as we move up the value chain by partnering with industry leaders like Sigfox and Silicon Labs,” said Régis LAURET, marketing director, at Eolane.

“As a leading player in connected ecosystems and intelligent objects, we offer a wide range of solutions for the IoT, from wireless sensor platforms to cloud computing, addressing a variety of applications and use cases while anticipating new services in the future.”

“We are excited to collaborate with éolane by providing EZR32 wireless MCUs enabling sub-GHz connectivity for their new Sigfox reference design module,” said Patrizio Piasentin, South Europe manager for Silicon Labs. “éolane’s low-power, small-footprint wireless modules will reduce cost and time to market and ease Sigfox qualification for customers developing IoT projects connected to long-range Sigfox network.”
